It attracts participation from colleges all over Bangalore as well as out-station teams for events like quizzing, music, theatre and dance. NLS students don a purely organizational role by way of raising sponsorships, creating publicity and organizing dozens of competitive as well as informal activities as part of the festival. In order to maintain impartiality, the host institution does not participate in the competitive activities. The festival is organised by the Event Management Committee (EMC) with the Cultural and Fine Arts Committee (‘Cul Comm') and the Literary and Debating Society (‘LnD') organizing the cultural and literary sections respectively.

Strawberry Fields is India 's largest student-organised rock show and is held concurrently with LeGala. The last few editions had more than 40 participating bands from all over South Asia and crowds in excess of 10,000. Its past 10 editions have served as launch-pads for prominent Indian bands like Moksha, Thermal and a Quarter, Motherjane, Zero and Medicis among others. The music festival started its existence under the name of ‘Lawcommotion' in 1996 and subsequently took on its present name. It was held in the NLSIU campus till 2002 but had to be held at the Palace Grounds in 2003, 2004 and 2005 on account of infrastructural constraints. Strawberry Fields will return home to campus for the 2006 edition, much to the delight of all those who have ever been associated with this venture.
